Description

My Debian Buster installation of the Quassel client (version 0.12.5) fails to connect with the message "Error while setting the maximum protocol version". I verified with Wireshark that my Linux client is actually communicating to the server on port 4242.

This seems to relate to code in
qt5/qtbase/src/network/ssl/qsslcontext_openssl11.cpp.html.

I have no problem to connect to my server with the Android client.

The error did not occur before version 5.11.1+dfsg-7 of qtbase was released to Debian testing on Sept. 10, 2018.

The relevant code in qtbase was changed with
e3cea2a7b9f8 ("QSslSocket (OpenSSL 1.1) - respect requested protocol version").

This is the protocol information provided by openssl:

$ openssl s_client connect myserver.domain:4242 -prexit
CONNECTED
